I've been in rest and recovery mode this week and the very first little bit of exercise I've been able to do was a 15 minute walk in my neighborhood. It felt like a total celebration after 5 days of confinement (temporary - getting better - excellent health returning) I'll be hooping, hiking and dancing again soon!

Going for a run tonight, and trying to get in as many training runs as I can before I run my 4th 5K (3 weeks away). So I'm working on hills, sprints and endurance. Fell off the wagon a bit in recent months, but I want to feel strong by race day and keep a regular workout routine going, rather than on again, off again.

Good luck and best wishes to all in your training and physical efforts!!

hi patty;  yes, it has been very hard.  i did not mention how i have cried much, but i have chosen to follow the inward power within me to walk this journey.  it knows what is best....for it can see what we cannot see ahead.  i, too have run since i was a little girl.  loved it, always.  i was a sprinter and my husband, who was a distant runner, started me on running long distance.  my longest run was 15+ miles.  i was really proud of myself.  after my injury, (stress fracture , in may 2011, after my 2nd 1/2 marathon) i was going to make my come back and train for a full marathon.  i guess those were my plans, but not the divine one.

what i have learned from this is not to attach myself to anything: persons, places and things.  it is all impermanent.....enjoy while you are there and move on to something new and different.  learning to live in the moment is wonderful.

i have not shared this with my running friends, yet.  i have not had on the running shoes since august 9, it has been a year and i have not run at all.  i enjoy yoga, too.  just may take up bike riding.  have not given that much thought.  for now....swimming is the thing for me to help cool this hot/dry temperment of my. :-)

hang in is all good!

have a beautiful day!

Hi Rosa,

Must of been hard to give up running. I have always been a runner, it would be hard for me to give it up. It's my time to check out and its like meditation for me. I am not a good swimmer and like you the deep end scares me.

Just recently I started running longer distances from 2-3 miles a day to now 5-6 and growing and since I am into animal rights activism I thought what a better way to combine 2 things I am passionate about. I have signed up for my first 10k and half marathon. Both to raise money and awareness for animal cruelty.

I live in Los Angeles where it is also quite warm, I haven't experienced any issues yet and I hope I don't.

By the way I love Johnny Cash!

Much love to you,

i had a beautiful run season from december 18, 2009 - august 9, 2011.  in that time i ran 2 half marathons and 1 5k.  i ran just for the fun of it in the beginning, but got competitive in the end.  was not a good thing for my body, but  am grateful for the time spent running.  because my temperment is hot/dry, running was very hard on my organs.  i have learned that you got to know when to fold up and walk away (johnny cash).  i am now going to start swimming, again.  i have not done this in a long time, but i am looking forward to having a wonderful time.

having to give up running has not been very easy for me.  after many hours of prayer, meditation and contemplation, I chose to be guided as to what is best for my body.

when i learned to swim, i did not lose my fear of being in the deep end of a pool.  now is a good time to release and overcome a  fear i created and just  enjoy the water.


Peace, Love and Light

I just signed up for PETA pack to run my first half marathon. I run usually 3-5 miles a day but I have never done 13 miles but I am excited to do this and run for a good cause. Giving a voice to animals!!! Anyone else here training for a half marathon. Any tips?
